The effect of status epilepticus on the adult hippocampal stem cell niche was studied in a mouse model. Notch signaling, assayed by hes5 reporter gene activity, was diminished in the subgranular zone (SGZ) of the dentate gyrus. Sox2+ cells as well as stem cell proliferation were altered, pointing to a disruption of the stem cell niche in epilepsy. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01.
